The right logo design is essential for any new business. A new logo design can also refresh and reinvigorate an old web design, without the need for a complete redesign.
If your logo design looks tired and dated, that’s what people will think about your company. Likewise if your logo was designed some time ago, it could be quite small or an awkward shape, or could look blurred when viewed on people’s high resolution devices on a new website.
It is said that you do not have a second chance to make a good first impression. Your logo is often the first design that visitors see of our business, so you want the impression they get to be a good one.
Your logo and website branding are the visual ambassadors of your brand’s identity. We specialise in crafting logos that encapsulate your brand’s essence and weaving that identity seamlessly throughout your website.

We specialise in creating websites that look and function beautifully across all devices, ensuring a seamless experience for every visitor.
All our websites are fully mobile friendly and designed with mobile phones and tablets in mind. If your website is not fully mobile friendly then a huge proportion of your web users / clients might not be able to use your website properly.

Bespoke web design Reading.
We believe every business deserves a unique website of its own. While themes and pre-designed templates have their place, nothing delivers conversions and brand awareness like a bespoke website – designed from the ground up by an experienced website builder.
We take the time to research the market, assess what competitors are doing, understand your business objectives and develop a unique brand identity. And that all happens before the design process begins.
We encourage all our clients to choose the bespoke approach to web design in Reading, as we believe it delivers a faster, more effective website. As our web developers remain in full control of the code, we avoid the speed-limiting excess code that can often affect page loading times and user experience which is also great for technical SEO.
Custom-made websites might cost more than out-of-the-box templates, but they’re always more cost-effective. Because we can create a user experience designed to showcase your products or services, you’ll recoup your investment faster – thanks to higher conversion and customer satisfaction rates.
Fast & lightweight web design.
Search engines such as Google reward fast, lightweight and user-friendly websites with higher positions on search engine results pages. That’s why speed and performance are always priorities.
WordPress websites that rely on pre-built themes and templates always suffer from slower-than-average loading times. This happens because they’re usually stuffed with unnecessary code. Our web developers strip our code down to the bare bones – ensuring speed and performance at all times. Our website builder has years of experience doing exactly this.
You could create a stunning website, packed with useful information and exciting features; but if it languishes on page five of search engine results because it’s too slow, no one will ever see it. Our website builder team have developed a range of techniques and strategies designed to keep all our websites lean, mean and super-fast.
Another benefit of a fast, lightweight web design is the technical SEO benefits it gives to your website. Reach out to us now to discuss your new, super-fast and fully bespoke website today.

Mobile friendly web design Reading.
Over 50% of web traffic is mobile so it’s important your website is responsive.
A website should look professional, convey your ideas and products effectively to your audience, and above all else, deliver returns on your investment. Websites can quickly become out of date or not work properly. Future proof your website by making sure it’s responsive and make sure your customers / clients can find the information they need.
Responsive websites adapt to their environment and reposition their elements on the screen, depending on its size. Using a large amount of pre written rules, whenever a website loads the code in the background will figure out how big the screen is, and it will display the website according to those rules.
Responsive web design is a very important approach in web design aimed at building sites to provide the best possible browsing experience with no need for pinching, zooming and scrolling, ensuring that the site renders in the easiest way possible for the users to read and navigate.
Given that over 50% of internet traffic is now mobile, it’s essential that your website is optimised for mobile and tablet, as well as desktop.

User experience (UX) built in.
The role of a web developer extends beyond just coding. It’s about creating an experience, a journey for the user.
At the heart of user experience lies UX/UI design, a discipline that focuses on how users interact with websites. It’s not just about aesthetics; it’s about ensuring that the visual hierarchy is clear, intuitive, and leads the user seamlessly from one section to another.
These principles guide the creation of websites that are not only visually appealing but also user-friendly. They ensure that users can easily navigate the site, find the information they’re looking for, and engage with the content in meaningful ways. By adhering to these principles, we create websites for clients that resonate with their target audience and drive engagement.
Web standards play a pivotal role in this process. They ensure that websites are accessible, consistent, and optimised for various devices and browsers. By following these standards, we ensure that the aspects of web design, such as layout, typography, and colour schemes, work harmoniously together, providing a cohesive and pleasant experience for all users.
